I think my Shetland Pony mare may be in foal. I'm not sure though, because I don't think she has been with any stallions. I know there are a few geldings who are currently int he pen with her, and a few months ago there was an older colt who wasn't a gelding yet in there, so that's why I am a little worried. I noticed that she might be because she was getting a big belly on her, which is usually normal, but this was abnormally large. At first I just shook it off and thought it was hay belly or something, but as I was grooming her, I noticed that her udders were a lot larger than normal and hard. Is this a sign? What other signs should I look for? Do you think she is likely in foal? OH And her vet check comes in a couple of months, and I called the vet and she said to wait and see in a couple of weeks, but that was before I noticed her udders.
Thanks for answering.
